(THE NEED FOR CAUTION)
We have noticed an increased trend of reckless accusations against the person of His Excellency, the Executive Governor, Dr Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) from disgruntled quarters across the state.
This ranges from disadvantaged politicians seeking for relevance and some so-called professional organisations seeking for recognision by all means. Due to the open door policy of His Excellency to allow democracy prevail, some of these individuals and groups are manipulating the freedom to bring the name of His Excellency to disrepute.
It must be stated here that democracy and freedom of speech are sacrosanct but in no way a ticket to abuse the institution of authority with slander and libel.
Every person or organisation with grudges against any misdeed must follow due process in seeking for redress by reporting any matter to the Security operatives and approaching the Court of Law for redress based on investigation outcome. Hence, such persons or groups must no longer come to the public and accuse His Excellency or his administration with baseless innuendos.
We hereby draw the attention of all persons and organisations to henceforth, be cautious of being indiscriminate by directly accusing His Excellency as the law will take its course on any further slander of libel against His Excellency.
